We are planning to start the conference at 9:30 am on the 2nd of Sept. to allow travel in the morning for those of you who are close enough to Teesside to do so. If you are planning to catch a train from Manchester or Edinburgh to Middlesbrough you may decide to travel in the morning of the 2nd of Sept.
In case of train journey, most of you will travel from your cities/towns to Darlington train station and change there to travel to Middlesbrough train station. Darlington train station is relatively close to Middlesbrough so you may decide to travel from Darlington to Teesside University by Taxi, this should cost you £20-£30, so if you are a group this may be a good option. Middlesbrough train station is 10-15 minutes walk away from Teesside University.
We will have a conference dinner on the evening of the 2nd of Sept. The conference will finish by 5 pm on the 3rd of Sept.
I am working on the programme at the moment and will let you know as soon as it is ready.
